Water supply and waste connection
Connect the supplied white water inlet hose to the inlet connection point on the base of the boiler and the other end to the supply via an accessible isolating tap with a ¾” BSP thread.
Only qualified or trained personnel should use this appliance.
Switch on the water and electricity supplies. Leave the boiler to fill for 30 minutes. Drain off approximately 5 litres of water to remove any loose carbon particles from the filter.
The boiler starts automatically when the water supply is turned on. During the heating cycle, only small quantities of water are added to ensure hot water is always available at the dispenser.
The boiler is designed to be permanently switched on: it is only necessary to turn it off for de-scaling or maintenance.
Water is drawn off through the dispenser (G).

Turn power off and on again. The FilterFlow screen (B) is displayed on the control panel (A).
Press and hold the power button (D) until the software version is displayed. Press the function button Fn (C) and the temperature will be displayed.
Press the power button to cycle through the values 70 to 96 Deg C. Press the Fn button to select the required value.
The backlight adjustment screen is displayed next. Press the power button to cycle through the values 1-25. Press the Fn button to select the required value.

EB3F/PBM PROGRAMMING GUIDE
The PBM version of the EB3F has the option to preset up to 3 measured dispense sizes. This quick guide shows the procedure for programming the water boiler.
To enter the programming mode, turn the electric off to the unit. Press and hold the “power button” and turn the electric on. After a few seconds the programming mode is entered.
Push the “Fn” button until the Use dispense screen is visible. Pressing set turns off the timed dispense and the unit changes to Push and hold for dispensing
Press set to select 1, 2 or 3 measured dispenses. Press next.

Press and hold the Hot water button to fill the chosen cup / mug. Release the button when the cup is full.
After filling there is a chance to test the volume and then either repeat the setting procedure or accepting the set volume. Press OK to accept
Press exit to return to the standard User screen or next to continue and programme more sizes.
The unit also has some built-in safety features when in measured dispense mode. These are
Pressing the “Hot water” button at any time during the filling will stop the fill cycle.
If the boiler is left unused for any length of time, turn the element off by pressing the
power button. Filter replacement
The filter display shows the estimated life remaining in the filter cartridge (Fig 2). A reminder message is displayed when the filter needs changing. The boiler can be used without a filter, but scale will quickly build up and water taste may be affected.
To replace the filter
Remove the drip tray from the appliance. Pull the bottom of the lower panel (Fig 1 (F)) outwards and release the two spring pins. Slide the panel downwards to remove. Twist the base of the filter 90 degrees to the left and lower the cartridge out of the appliance. It will contain a small amount of water,
Remove the black cap and place it on the new filter.
Re-insert the filter into the recess and lock into place by twisting to the right. Refit the lower panel.
For EB3F/PB, hold the Fn button for 10 seconds to reset the filter life. For EB3F/PBM hold the Fn and On/Off buttons down simultaneously for 10 seconds.
Drain off approximately 5 litres of water to remove any loose carbon particles from the filter.
Do not use a water jet or steam cleaner, and do not immerse this appliance. Clean all panels with warm water and mild detergent, do not use abrasive
materials. Dry with a soft cloth.
Slide out and empty the drip tray regularly, and wipe the dispensing nozzle daily to remove limescale deposits.
The boiler should be de-scaled regularly to maintain efficient operation and water quality. The frequency depends on the hardness of the water and timely
replacement of the filter.
The de-scaling procedure must be performed by trained personnel as it requires the removal of panels from the boiler giving access to live electrical components.
De-scaling the boiler at the end of the working day gives the de-scaling agent several hours to work. Lincat recommend our own de-scaling agent MS19, available from our Spares department.
Wear protective clothing.
Isolate the boiler from the electrical supply.
Turn off the power and allow the water to cool to 60 Deg C. Using a 3mm Allen key, remove the screw in the top of the boiler.
Remove the insulation from the top of the tank. Unscrew and remove the tank lid. Add the de-scaling agent slowly to avoid eruption of the water, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Replace tank lid and outer lid and attach an ‘Out of Use’ notice to prevent use during de-scaling.
Turn on the electricity and run the boiler normally for 30 minutes. Isolate the boiler and allow the water to cool.
Remove both outer and tank lids again. Inspect the tank and level sensor housings for scale deposits. If necessary, repeat the de-scaling process.
Drain and flush de-scaling agent as follows:
Remove the drip tray, lower panel, silicone dispense hose and the inner cover. Connect a hose from the overflow pipe to a bucket and open the service valve to drain the water from the tank.
Flush the tank with clean water, shut the valve and replace the covers.
SERVICING, MAINTENANCE AND
Other than replacing the filter, all servicing, maintenance and component
replacement on these appliances should be carried out by one of our recommended service engineers.
The control panel displays information that can help with fault diagnosis. Before calling for service, draw off a litre of water, clear the fault code by pressing the Fn button and turn the boiler off and on again at the supply. If the fault persists, call service for advice.
